Clarke Tolton was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and raised in Huntington Beach, California. Shortly after graduating with a BFA from Art Center College of Design in 2002, he moved to New York where he worked as an assistant and learned to live on a shoe string budget. When he’s not chasing light on location or shooting in the studio, you will find him surfing where ever the waves are good. Clarke now divides his time between LA and NYC.

Clarke’s clients include Toms, Urban Outfitters, Kate Spade, Kate Spade Saturday, Hex, O’Neill, Vodafone, Quiksilver, Raen Optics, Capital Records, Aritzia, Brixton, Oak, Elle UK, Nylon, Teen Vogue, Dazed and Confused, Details, Glamour, Complex, New York Times T Magazine, Lucky, and Another Magazine.
